Response to PicturingPolitics (Reply #8)

11. "centrists" don't like that "progressives" have been working on this for decades.

They don't like that the progressive message hasn't changed, as they've wielded their power through successive "centrist" D and R admins to cause untold and exponentially more harmful damage in every sphere. They don't like the word 'progressive' unless it is totally brutalized by them, rendered meaningless, and in that brutally meaningless, forgetful, fictional world, their candidates can claim to be "progressive" even while slandering progressive leaders. Swift-boating them. Playing dirty tricks. Refusing to discuss their own past, refusing to discuss the actual.

eta: when I use the term "swift-boating" I mean it in the original sense first and foremost.
